Investigadora postdoctoral especializada en invasiones biológicas, Instituto Pirenaico de Ecología (IPE-CSIC)

I completed my PhD at the Pyrenean Institute of Ecology on the effects of river regulation on aquatic biodiversity and the use of ecological restoration to recuperate lost ecosystem functions. Following my PhD, I was awarded with a Marie Curie IEF fellowship, which allowed me to continue my investigations in the University of Cambridge. After my Marie Curie IEF, I had the opportunity to work for Cambridge Environmental Consulting, where I led a total of four projects dealing with invasive species, including a work package within the EU-funded project RINSE (Reducing the Impacts of Non-native species in Europe, www.rinse-europe.eu). Then I moved back to Spain thanks to a postdoctoral position offered by Doñana Biological Station, an international top-quality research center in ecology. This position has allowed me to interact with a varied range of ecologist, fostering my multidisciplinar abilities. I am now a postdoctoral Juan de la Cierva researcher at the Pyrenean Institute of Ecology.
